With tens of billions of devices anticipated by 2020, security is one of the critical components to enabling a seamless connection between the edge node to the cloud. Atmel also offers a complete portfolio of IoT solutions that combine Atmel | SMART MCUs along with its SmartConnect wireless technologies ranging from Wi-Fi, 802.15.4 and Bluetooth, and Atmel secure products. This effort enables developers using Atmel wireless solutions the option to use the trusted Intel EPID identification standard in their solutions.

"Implementing Intel EPID offers IoT designers a truly seamless edge-to-cloud Internet of Things platform with proven security options available with our broad Internet of Things portfolio," said Kaivan Karimi, Vice President and General Manager of Wireless Solutions, Atmel Corporation. "With this new technology, Atmel's SmartConnect wireless and IoT solutions now support Intel EPID, a security technology that has been proven over the last 5 years."

Intel EPID is an ISO standard for identity and privacy that has been shipping in Intel platforms since 2011. The technology delivers a hardware root of trust and is PKI compatible. With Intel EPID, devices can be identified and a secure communication can be linked between these devices. Additionally, the group membership can be determined without revealing the identity of the specific platform allowing for another level of security. Intel EPID can dynamically assign and revoke group memberships by individuals. Even more, this technology meets the latest protected key delivery requirements for content and data protection protocols.

"With the rapidly growing IoT ecosystem, security is key, and Intel EPID is a proven secure technology that can provide the billions of devices in this new market with a common security foundation. By implementing Intel EPID technology, Atmel is enabling a more secure, seamless IoT platform," said Lori Wigle, General Manager, IoT Security for Intel Corporation.
